ABOUT RIVERFRONT:

Where past and present unite along the banks of the Mississippi. The story of Minneapolis begins at the Falls of St. Anthony, the only major waterfall on the Mississippi River. A place of beauty and spiritual significance, the falls lured entrepreneurs in the 19th century who harnessed its water-power for sawmills and flour mills that built the city, which became the flour milling capital of the world in 1880. 

With the booming industrial era now over the Minneapolis Riverfront has retained its heritage and been reborn with a new kind of energy, capitalizing on the spectacular beauty of the river and creating a rich mix of experiences for people to enjoy.
